  • Cinnamon rolls with vanilla pudding mix

    (all I recall is that a box of vanilla pudding mix is added to the dough batter)

  • Re: Cinnamon rolls with vanilla pudding mix

    Overnight Pull Aparts 12 to 16 frozen white roll dough (still frozen, I use 16) 1 (3.4 oz.) package vanilla instant pudding ¼ cup sugar ¼ cup dried cranberries 1 orange ring, grated ½ cup butter or margarine, melted Frosting (recipe below) Sprinkle cranberries in the bottom of a greased bundt pan. Arrange rolls evenly in pan. Mix sugar and dry pudding together and sprinkle over rolls. Combine orange rind with melted butter and spoon over rolls. Cover pan with sprayed plastic wrap. Place pan in cold oven overnight (8 to 10 hours). Remove rolls from oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove plastic wrap from pan and bake for 25 min. Immediately invert pan onto a serving platter. Cool slightly and drizzle with frosting. Frosting 1 cup powdered sugar 1 tablespoon melted butter 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice To make the same thing in a cinnamon version you can use: ¾ chopped nuts in place of the cranberries 4 oz package of butterscotch pudding in place of vanilla pudding and sugar ½ cup packed brown sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in place of the orange rind Then you don’t even need the frosting, but if you really want it use milk in place of the orange juice.)

    Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

    1/4 cup warm water
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1/2 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
    (**I use the whole box.  I have also used French Vanilla and Banana)
    1 cup warm milk
    1 egg, room temperature
    1 tablespoon white sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    4 cups bread flour
    1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1 cup brown sugar
    4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    3/4 cup chopped pecans or any desire nuts (optional)

    1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 teaspoons milk

    In the pan of your bread machine, combine water, melted butter, vanilla pudding, warm milk, egg, 1 tablespoon sugar, salt, bread flour and yeast. Set machine to Dough cycle; press Start.

    When Dough cycle has finished, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 17x10 inch rectangle. Spread with softened butter. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over dough.

    Roll up dough, beginning with long side. Slice into 16 one inch slices and place in 9x13 buttered pan. Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. While rolls bake, stir
    together cream cheese, softened butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and milk. 
    Remove rolls from oven and top with frosting.

    I used this frosting...we think it's better.

    1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup butter, softened 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/8 teaspoon salt

    Beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving
